More volunteers needed


The Royal Volunteer Service is looking for new volunteers to help and befriend others in the community.

The service aims to support over-50s across Bassetlaw, and offer a home from hospital service, long-term supported shopping and telephone befriending.

Speaking at the Service’s 75th anniversary celebrations, Margaret Smithurst, 77, said: “It’s made a big difference to my life. It’s been a life-saver, knowing somebody’s there to listen to you.”
